This beer surprised me. It looks somewhere between yellow and orange in color, and based on the that, you wouldn't expect it to taste the way it does. In fact, it was as full-flavored and aromatic as darker ales with much higher ABV%. Outstanding flavor profile for such a readily available beer (in my area), and it's not very powerful, so you can enjoy more of it before calling it quits for an evening.

This IPA is on the bitter side, so you prefer a dryer IPA, this might not be for you, but if you enjoy unmissable bright hops flavor in your beer and want a slightly lower ABV, this is an exquisite example.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before May 2013. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, orange rind, floral, pine, tangerine, grass, light caramel, light honey, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity of hop and malt notes. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, pine, orange rind, floral, grass, light honey, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of floral pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a solid malt balance and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. Very nice complexity and balance of hop and malt flavor; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering as expected.
